    First, stop by the intro section so you can get to know us! We're a pretty friendly bunch here, and like to give all our new members a warm welcome.

    Second, that's a matter of opinion, and pretty sure to start a good running thread. My opinion, the AK is more fun. But only by a hair, and really only if it's full auto.

    Im thinking of an inter ordnance ak47 or spend a little more for an ar 15. But i need to consider keeping the ammo cost down. Any opinions?

    You can keep ammo costs down with both by buying surplus ammo. Not too sure on the numbers, but I think they're both pretty cheap on the surplus market.

    Now the AR is quite a bit more accurate, but a new shooter may not even be able to notice the difference.

    Jon is correct, the AK47 is not real fun, but the AK74 is! Rifles are about the same as a 47 $ wise, but ammo is still dirt cheap. $140.00 per 1080 rounds.

    Thanks for video. That was a real good informational piece. I got to look into pricing im hearing the ar is about double the cost of a n ak. I like the american light weightless. I really got to see what my pocket book looks like. Thanks again, Mike

    For my money, the AK47.

    It's all personal, but I get a much better buzz firing the AK.

    The AR is just kind of eennhhh!

    My preference is more for the AK 47, because ammunition is cheap, I prefer bigger caliber rifles, and for my intended purpose, which is just plinking at 100-200 yards you can't beat it.

    I like them both, can't imagine not having both. Good chance you eventually will too.

    I love shooting both AR and AK but if you want to get the most bang for your $$$ then I would say AK. Simply because ammo cost and availability of surplus ammo availability for the AK.
